Recently, I needed to make a wedding card for a wedding that I was attending, and as I normally do, I used the invite to construct the card.
I didn't take a picture unfortunately of the invite I received, but I can show you what I created with it. The invite arrived on pearlescent cream card, with bright red roses on the front in a little square. It wasn't a hand crafted card, it was one of the printed selection you can get directly onto the card stock.
It was very stylish and also very simple, so I made my card bearing this in mind. Firstly I removed the roses element, I would definitely be re-using that!!! .... I used red ribbons to give colour, and leave the card front cream. I also added a few diamante gems to roses, to highlight the shape, and mounted it on gold card. I had a really pretty background A4 card that has embossed roses on, so I used that as the front of the card. (You can just about see the detail in the photograph- needless to say it is much prettier and more delicate in real life!!)
The card needed to contain the gift of money, so I thought that a pocket inside would be the best idea. It also allows me to fully decorate the inside, and create a gift, rather than just use plain white inserts. I also used a short phrase on the other side of the card, so that it completed the inside.
Overall, I am really happy with how it turned out, and also, because I used elements from the invite itself, I knew that they would really like it. :)
The wedding was lovely, I enjoyed the chance to get dressed up, and enjoy a lovely day with my family.
